Comments about ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System:

I purchased this product on sale and it came with cleansing cloths, which was a great bonus. I have found that this cleansing machine lifts the dead skin easily from my face. After a couple of weeks of use, my skin looks much better. I wish this machine had two speeds, as I've seen with other brands. I am happy with this purchase, and plan to buy one for my mother.

    Wonderful For Dry Skin

      Comments about ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System:

      I needed something to get rid of rough dry patches on my skin due to the winter wind but also give a deeper cleanse because I wear full coverage foundation. This did both.

      The device is a bit on the heavy side but I'd say no heavier than a small hammer. It is no louder than a mechanical toothbrush. The bristles are a bit rough so I do not plan on using this during the summer when my skin tends to get more oily but as long as you do not put too much pressure on it (this will also cause the device to stall) then it shouldn't irritate your skin. Wet the brush head, attach it to the device, pour a bit of your cleanser on the bristles, and let the roataing head do the work for you. Move counter clockwise around any patches where you need some extra exfoliation. The foam pad isn't that great for an all over serum but isn't too bad for a night cream. I wouldn't recommend it for a day cream as it doesn't buff the cream into your skin, it just layers it on top. Just dot your cream on your forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin then use the foam head to massage it in. Whatever keep you from touching your face with your hands right?

      The first night I used it I noticed an immediate difference in the texture of my skin. My skin also felt much cleaner. Dry patches were almost completely gone and my skin actually felt sqeeky clean in other areas. I used the foam head to apply my night cream and when I woke up my skin felt very soft. Much better than using my hands alone.

      After using the next morning my rough patches completely disappeared and I could tell my acne wasn't as inflamed. My daytime serum really sunk into my skin instead of saying on top, giving me an oily sheen, and my moisturizer actually moisturized instead of just sitting on top of my serum. My pores have been thirsty I'm sure!

      I hope this lasts a while. I traded out the cheap batteries that Ulta supplies with the device for better batteries and now it doesn't sound like it will die at any moment. Even if I do have to replace this device twice a year I'll still end up saving a bundle in comparison to the Clarisonic. I just wish there were different brush options, like for sensitive skin or body, but maybe Ulta will come out with more in the future.

      Comments about ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System:

      I had been eyeing different facial cleansing brushes for a while and decided to take the leap on this one. I figured I'd rather be out $25, if I didn't like it then $100+. That aside, this was a GREAT purchase! I love this thing. My face feels so clean and refreshed after using this. I only knocked the rating down because the bristles on the brush can be harsh if you push down slightly too hard. I will say, if you have sensitive skin, I wouldn't recommend using the brush. Instead wet the sponge attachment and use that. You still get a nice clean feeling and it's not as harsh as the brush. I use both attachments with my usual cleanser but I can already see the difference in my skin from using this.

      By Ali

      from Texas

      Comments about ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System:

      I wanted something that would really clean my face and exfoliate it, as I have very dry skin so I started doing some searching. I wanted a clarisonic but wasn't willing to pay $100+ for one so when I found this one I knew I had to try it out, and I was not let down! Some people commented it was harsh on their face. I have sensitive skin so that kind of scared me but when I opened it the brush bristles were very soft.. However upon washing my face it got very irritated, I figured it was because I had been pushing down on the brush too hard, second time around I let the brush do the work with minimal force on my part and it worked great!!! Really excited I found an alternative to the clarisonic!!!

        Nothing feels better than a good face scrub. A lot of people are kind of whining about it being to harsh, but no way. The bristles are soft & I even use it with a scrub. Love it!

        Ehhhhh

        By Sophie

        from Florida

        Comments about ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System:

        This product isn't all that great. It doesn't work right unless you rotate it counterclockwise on your face. And even the slightest pressure applied it stops working until you remove the pressure and even when you remove pressure it takes 3 or 4 seconds to get going again. The brush attachment is nice and soft but the tool itself needs more power. The sponge bush does a terrible job of applying moisturizer.

          • Q:

            In what ways could this be better than the Olay Pro-X Cleansing system?
            Asked on 12/26/2014 by Abby from United States

            1 answer

            • Staff Reviewer

              A:

              ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System is very similar to Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System. Both devices feature a rotating brush head movement that gently and effectively cleanses the skin as well as provides light exfoliation. Olay's brush features two speeds, while ULTA's brush features one universal speed. Olay's brush is water-resistant for safe use in the shower, while ULTA's is not and is recommended to be used outside of the shower. Olay's brush includes one brush head, while ULTA's brush includes one brush head and one sponge head. We hope that highlighting these similarities and differences helps! We also recommend to read the ratings and reviews of each product at ULTA.com. Both are rated very highly (currently 4.4 out of 5 stars!).

            Is it best to use once a day or would you recommend twice daily?

              A:

              This device is safe to use twice daily. If you have sensitive skin, you may wish to only use it once daily. We recommend experimenting to see what frequency works best for your skin!

          • Q:

            My dermatologist recommended the Clarisonic brush but it's a little out of my price range, unfortunately. How does this product compare and would it be a decent replacement to the clarisonic?

              A:

              There is a difference in the movement. ULTA Dual Action Cleansing device features a rotating brush head rather than Clarisonic's sonic oscillating brush head. Clarisonic devices have also been in many clinical and consumer studies and have proven results, while ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System has not undergone any clinical or consumer studies and does not have any clinically proven results. The benefits of ULTA Dual Action Cleansing System are that it provides gentle cleansing and light exfoliation to improve skin texture and moisture absorption. We hope this info helps!

          • Q:

            Hello this brush seems really useful, but is the brush head antibacterial so it doesn't absorb all the bacteria on your skin and then when using next just put all that bacteria back on your skin. If not do they make antibacterial brush heads that is compatible with the brush.

              A:

              The brush heads are not currently treated to be antimicrobial and are not made of antimicrobial material, but by washing your brush heads regularly (we recommend at least once weekly) and by replacing them every 3 months, you can keep them clean and safe for your skin.

              This brush is gentle enough to use twice daily. You may prefer the super gentle sponge attachment to the brush attachment. If you experience any sensitivity, reduce frequency of use to just once daily.
